Project Management 2 – Lead your project team!

Facilitation is all about making good use of the project participants’ knowledge, experiences and opinions in a beneficial process that is both well thought out and well managed. As a project manager you must be able to do this – and there is always room for improvement!

The course focuses on making you stronger in your role as facilitator and manager of the project team. You will be introduced to a series of methods, which you will have ample opportunity to try out in practice during the course. You will be asked to both plan and manage the practical execution of a workshop for a project team, as well as act as a project participant in a number of other workshops. The majority of your learning will come from the feedback that will be given after each workshop during the course. You will receive personal feedback and plenty of inspiration to help you become stronger in your role as project manager, better at facilitating a good process, and better at getting your project team off to a good start. 

This course is taught in English.

Project Management 2  Lead your project team! is a part of Implement's Project Management Programme. Implement's Project Management Programme is IPMA Registered®
